Full Description
Welcome to Orange Tree House where we specialise in making your wedding day one to truly remember. We fell in love with Orange Tree House, situated in the pretty historical village of Greyabbey on the shores of Strangford Lough, over 8 years ago. Since then we have restored the beautiful 1820's stone barn style church and transformed it into a unique conference and wedding venue. When we opened in October 2014, for the first time in over 110 years, a bride and groom celebrated their wedding here.   We believe in "Your day, your way". Whether you opt for a traditional, elegant wedding or take a more alternative approach, we will endeavor to accommodate your plans. Orange Tree House is a totally private venue but, unlike most other private venues, we also provide all of your catering, bar, furniture, tableware etc. so all you need to do is choose your date, menu and drinks then relax and enjoy your day.   As well as having the beautiful stone barn style banqueting room with its exposed beams at your disposal, you and your guests can enjoy the Orangerie with its open fire. You can sip a cocktail or two in our stunning new guest lounge which overlooks Strangford Lough (a designated area of outstanding natural beauty)and onwards towards Whiterock Bay, with the Dromara Hills and the Mourne Mountains as a backdrop. Here you can also relax and enjoy the amazing sunsets, whatever the weather.   The function room can comfortably accommodate up to 132 guests for ceremonies and dinner with room for extra evening guests up to a total of around 160. We have over 100 bed spaces within a 5 minute radius, many within walking distance and are located half an hour from Belfast.   We would be delighted to show you around and discuss your plans.

Cannot recommend Orange Tree House highly enough.
Cannot recommend Orange Tree House highly enough. With what has been a very challenging year with Covid and our wedding date changing 4 times, the support and help we got from Jan, Sian and Gary was amazing. From the many phonecalls and emails inc. the many rants about how the executive where handling things, I personally developed a really good relationship with the management team and I appreciate all they done for me. The venue itself is absolutely beautiful and offers a relaxed atmosphere for everyone. I honestly am glad I didnt go for a big hotel and instead choose a smaller and more intimate venue. We are so happy we got to have our wedding reception at orange tree house in the end. It was worth the wait. And the food... wow. All our guests could not get over how great the food was. All in all, we are so happy we chose Orange Tree House and have many happy memories to take away from the experience. Much love, the new Mr & Mrs Sproule (Joanne and David) xx
